Description: The AGM-65 Maverick is a tactical air-to-surface missile designed to strike a wide range of surface fixed or moving targets. Maverick can be released from safe range minimizing exposure to the enemy's air defenses. AGM-65 is a modular design weapon allowing a different combination of warhead and guidance package. Due to this the Maverick evolved from TV-guided A model to current CCD-TV-guided H/K models. Maverick was used during operation Desert Storm, in 1991, achieving 85% of success rate. All Maverick models are powered by a single Thiokol TX-481 solid-propellant rocket motor.

The Maverick missile can be fired from virtually any western aircraft fighter. It has also been integrated on helicopters. For example AH-1W Super Cobra and New Zealand's Sea Sprite helicopters. Due to its characteristics Maverick is suitable even against small ships or boats. From 1972 to date more than 65,000 Maverick missiles have been produced for the United States and 27 international customers.

The AGM-65K missiles should be an updated derivative of AGM-65G. G's guidance section would be replaced with a 480x480 pixels CCD-TV sensor, the same used in H models, plus modern hardware and software. CCD-TV sensor will provide mainly clearer picture and longer standoff range.

The AGM-65K missile was employed successfully for the first time in 2003 during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Subsequently generating international interest in upgrading existing TV Maverick inventories to the H/K version.
